Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The effects of vestibular stimulation on extrapersonal and personal neglect and on awareness of disease were investigated in four patients with severe neglect and anosognosia. Neglect phenomena improved in all patients, while an effect on anosognosia was found in two cases. These preliminary findings indicate a possible role of vestibular stimulation on hemispheric activation.
